Elevated railway along Auguste-Blanqui boulevard – Circa 1920
Aerial metro sur le Boulevard Auguste-Blanqui – Vintage photo circa 1920
These aren’t Montmartre and the Sacré-Cœur that you can see on the background heights…but it’s actually the Butte-aux-Cailles area and its Sainte-Anne Church. A nice overview of a part of the XIIIth arrondissement during the 20’s, with a smoking factory smokestack, and some hotels and other fabric factories settled along the metro line 6. A moving metro can also be noticed on this aerial railway section, not so far from the Glacière station.
Good. Nice contrasts. Vertical folding from the top to the bottom of the picture, almost not visible
